Description of the Change

On a Cavium Thunder (ARM64) system, ethtool outputs less information than on (most? all?) AMD64 systems. This causes the network test to fail to identify the network speed, resulting in a default "pass" result even when the network is under-performing. This patch broadens the scope of the search for the link speed in the network test, causing correct behavior on both AMD64 and Cavium systems -- that is, a reported failure when the network test actually fails.
